Mom's 5 Cup Salad With Pineapple Dressing
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
When I lost this recipe, I searched everywhere for one just like it. None of them had the dressing, which, IMO, makes this fruit salad. The dressing is very similar to what's used in Taffy Apple Salads, so I used that for awhile. I finally found my mom's recipe in a basket full of old recipes and want to post it here. I could eat all of this in one sitting. I don't care for the coconut, so I don't add it. I also guessed on the number of servings. Prep time includes time spent whisking dressing.
